“Remember when it was de rigueur to stretch before running and over-hydrate before heading out the door? As technology advances and researchers discover more about the human body in motion, long-held fitness beliefs get blasted. Currently before the firing squad: heart rate, aging, foot-strike, fueling, and footwear rules that have likely been ingrained in your psyche.Don’t get caught on the wrong side of science.

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | Science Education | Scoop.it
After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

If you are looking for ways to use ThingLink with your students you should check out this slideshow available on Google Drive. It provides 66 (and growing) ways to use ThingLink in the classroom. Some of the suggestions are geared to teachers, and others are student oriented. 

ThingLink is free to educators. If students do not have an email they share a way you may add students to your account.

They have recently put out an app (free) for the iPhone and iPad.

From Bacillus coahuilensis, a strategy to extend phosphate resources

From Bacillus coahuilensis, a strategy to extend phosphate resources | Science Education | Scoop.it

It was super to hear Luis Herrera-Estrella share this exciting work at the ICAR meeting. Luis has been investigating the problem of phosphate limitation for much of his career - see more here: (http://www.hhmi.org/research/sirs/herrera_estrella.html).

 

The work, recently published in Nature Biotechnology (http://www.nature.com/nbt/journal/v30/n9/full/nbt.2346.html) explores the use of phosphite, a reduced version of phospate, as a dual purpose fertilizer and weed killer. His work suggests that by using phosphite, the limited global reserves could serve our needs for twice as long as if we continue to use it as phosphate.

 

One of the interesting things I learned from his talk is about the source of the enzyme phosphite oxidoreductase. It was found in Bacillus coahuilensis, which lives in a very nutrient-poor environment, Cuatro Ciénegas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuatro_Ci%C3%A9negas). This unique environment is one of only a few places you can find living stromatolites (colonies of cyanobacteia) - Shark Bay, Western Australia is the other well-known place to see them.

Lectures Aren't Just Boring, They're Ineffective, Too, Study Finds | Science Education | Scoop.it
Are your lectures droning on? Change it up every 10 minutes with more active teaching techniques and more students will succeed, researchers say. A new study finds that undergraduate students in classes with traditional stand-and-deliver lectures are 1.5 times more likely to fail than students in classes that use more stimulating, so-called active learning methods.

ThingLinkToolkit - Edmodo

ThingLinkToolkit - Edmodo | Science Education | Scoop.it

Edmodo is a free and secure social learning platform for teachers and students to collaborate and connect in the 24/7 classroom. The design and functionality of Edmodo is similar to Facebook, but the focus is on teaching and learning within a protected environment. Students don't even need an email account to sign up.
Teachers and students can extend the learning by posting messages, holding online discussions, picking up work and turning it in. Edmodo supports a variety of multimedia to provide students with flexible learning paths including links, images, video and interactive graphics created withThingLink.
http://www.thinglink.com/
Perhaps an engaging assignment for students would be to publish an interactive graphic to be explored prior to class. This type of assignment can provide students with background knowledge, front load the learning and level the playing field to prepare students for success in class
